    C++ JNI 1_8 - Difficulty executing jar (missing class loads)


      I have a jar that I can execute normally using java.exe Trying to execute this jar from a JNI-using C++ project I hit error after error.



      WIndows 8
      Visual Studio 2017
      Netbeans 8.2
      JRE/JDK: jdk1.8.0_102
      JVM dll path: C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_102/jre/bin/server/jvm.dll


      In the C project I load the java project as a binary stream, then loop each class entry and use DefineClass( name, null, bytes, size ), five classes fail.


      Upon retryng the five, four pass ( so, dependency problem ), one class never passes.


      failing class:


      import javax.mail.Authenticator;
      import javax.mail.PasswordAuthentication;
      public class MyAuthenticator extends Authenticator
          String username;
          String password;
          public MyAuthenticator( String u , String p )
              this.username = u;
              this.password = p;
          public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication()
              return new PasswordAuthentication( username, password );


      If I use FindClass in the C project for Authenticator and PasswordAuthentication, they pass. Java project still get class not found.


      If I use class for name in the java project it fails, it passes if I also send the system class loader (default loader is null), but the java project still cant find the class once it gets to the code that calls new.


      I also have five custom threads started on the main of the java project, they also complain about class not found (for every thread) eg for Thread1 extends Thread, if I do new Thread1() and Thread1.run() it will not be able to. These Thread classes pass the DefineClass loop so they should exist on the jvm.


      Im gtting frustrated, but what am I doing wrong? or is JNI too simple to do this?
